It was a GA show and I was 10 feet from the stage. It was so intense after the smoking BEW, LLR and China Rider closer of the first set, I had to move.
Hitmeister probably never liked any show other than the ones on the comfort of his couch. What a fool.
This show is one of the greatest of all times.
The recording is adequate. I have a better one in my collection.
I prefer audio to soundboard.

Re: the "fizzle" review below: the reason there is no Black Peter solo is Jerry was so anxious to do GDTRFB, which freakin' rips. Satisfaction is also insanely hot. A Great One.
Actually, the first set is quite a bit better than I thought at the time. The 2nd set, however, starts out like it might really turn into something, only to fizzle out before the end.
An insane but short Slipknot gets things rolling, followed by a nice rendition of Franklin's Tower. Truckin' comes next, followed by a Spoonful/Smokestack Lightning jam that begins to turn spacy before Jerry leaves the stage. Jerry pretty much mails it in from that point on. He doesn't even bother to do a guitar solo at the end of Black Peter.
The show might be worth downloading if you're a big fan of Brent. He's really up in the mix, particularly during the 2nd set, and he does some of his best playing, particularly an Other One-ish solo just before drums, and his work on Throwing Stones. Otherwise, there are much better shows to choose from.
